Annie Mac, the legendary BBC Radio 1 DJ, has expressed her concerns about the lack of female representation in the music industry.
According to the DJ, who is quitting her flagship Radio 1 show: “I feel annoyed being grateful that we have a female breakfast show presenter on Radio 2 or 6 Music. We shouldn’t be grateful. It should be a given, not an anomaly.
“But I’m very encouraged at Radio 1 with the commitment they have to women. Clara getting the show that I’m leaving is the most sensible and inspired choice. It’s great, but there’s still a long way to go.”
